Pesto Pull-apart Xmas Tree

Looking for a delicious and beautiful treat to add flair to your festive table?  Look no further – and it is much easier than it looks!

This is what you will need:

  • 2 sheets (packs) puff pastry
  • Basil Pesto
  • Sundried tomatoes
  • Olives
  • Sundried Tomatoes
  • Crumbed feta

Thaw the puff pasty – defrost in the fridge or according the package instructions.  As soon as it is pliable, unroll one of the puff pasty sheets a perpared baking sheet on an ovenproof baking tray.

Spread basil pesto on the puff pastry sheet in the shape of a Christmas Tree – like below 🙂  Mark the top and sides of the trees with a knife.

Carefully place the second sheet puff pastry on top. And mark the bottom and ‘stem’ of the Christmas Tree shape.

Cut the puff pasty in the shape of a Christmas Tree – keep the leftover puff pastry aside, it will be used later.  Next step, cut thick even strips in the pastry to make the branches of the tree -and give each branch a twist – so that your tree looks like this:

Add sun-dried tomato slices and olives as decoration for the tree, and use a star-shaped cookie press to make stars of the leftover puff pastry.

Pop in a preheated oven at 200C for 15 – 20 minutes until crisp and golden.

Sprinkle some crumbed feta ‘snow’ over and voila!
